Install COLLADA in MAYA 8.5 in MAC OS X
I'm a new user in this forum...
I wish install collada plug-in in my mac os x for export from MAYA 8.5 the 3D model for use it in PAPERVISION 3D by FLASG CS3.
Well... I've do this installation operation:
To use ColladaMaya for Linux, run one of the following scripts:
The scripts will only work if you installed Maya in the default folder,
which is /usr/aw/maya8.0 or /usr/autodesk/maya8.5
To use ColladaMaya for MAC OSX, open a Terminal Window
(/Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app), use the 'cd' command to change
the current directory to the folder that was just uncompressed, and run
the script by typing "./MacInstallColladaMaya85Release.sh" at the line.
The script assumes that the Maya folder is /Applications/Autodesk/Maya8.5
If Maya 8.5 was *not* installed in the default folder, the shell script
should be modified to reflect the real folder in which Maya resides.
Now I need know where i must put this script to use in MAYA:
Someone can help me please?
I don't have an answer unfortunately, but you might want to post on Feeling Software's forum. They're responsible for the Collada plugins for Max and Maya.
thank I'll try to freesoftware forum
The files should be placed in these folders, Just go to your application folder, find the maya.app and rightclick on the application icon -> show folder contents..
AEcolladafxPassesTemplate.mel: maya->contents->scripts->AETemplates folder
render_colladafxShader.xpm: maya->contents->icons folder
AEcolladafxShaderTemplate.mel: maya->contents->scripts->AETemplates folder
colladafxTest.mel: maya->contents->scripts->others folder
colladaImporterOpts.mel: maya->contents->scripts->others folder
colladaTranslatorOpts.mel: maya->contents->scripts->others folder
render_colladafxPasses.xpm: maya->contents->icons folder
The .sh file of the installer which comes with de collada installer says:
sudo cp scripts/AE* /Applications/Maya.app/Contents/scripts/AETemplates/
copy all the files that start with AE (like AEcolladafxPassesTemplate.mel) into the
the rest says:
sudo cp scripts/collada* /Applications/Maya.app/Contents/scripts/others/:
all the files that start with collada (like colladaImporterOpts.mel) go into the
sudo cp scripts/*.xpm /Applications/Maya.app/Contents/icons/:
all the files with the extension .xpm (like render_colladafxPasses.xpm) go into the
hope it helps!!
Re: Install COLLADA in MAYA 8.5 in MAC OS X
This does help, but what about the files in the Output/Release folder. They are named
COLLADA_m85.bundle and COLLADA_m2008.bundle
Are these files supposed to be placed anywhere?
